An awesome tour. Big ups to Viator VIP. Everything was well-organized and timely. Our tour guide Andrew and driver Sam were excellent. Andrew is deeply versed in the history of this city and his narrations were sprinkled with good humor. Truly enjoyed the experience. Our driver Sam was very kind and accommodated us we had our toddler and her stroller on board. Thank you Andrew and Sam!
Nick was great. Very well organized, very informative. Lunch was great. Loved it all.
Great tour and great tour guide. Christopher did a great job of explaining what we were seeing, where we were going with interesting comments about every location. A great way to start and visit and get a sense of what the DC area near the center of our federal government is all about.
Nick our tour guide was crisp with facts and information with his knowledge of DC plus was entertaining during our bus ride. Tony our bus driver drove carefully through the DC streets and always got his passengers as close as possible to each site. Would recommend the VIP tour.
This tour covers everything! There is quite a bit of walking, but we really got information and time to spend at each war memorial and presidential memorials. Our tour guide was energetic and had lots of extra interesting stories.
Very informative and interesting tour. Our guide, Nick was great fun and it was obvious that he enjoyed sharing his knowledge with us. The tour is done at a fast pace but with enough time to see and experience everything. We met lots of interesting people on the tour. Lunch was above expectations and the trip on the river a chance to relax and catch our breath. Our driver Lee was very much part of the team and greeted us with water every time we returned to the coach. I would recommend this tour. We saw more of Washington in a day than most people would have seen in a week if left to their own planning. If you get a chance to have nick for a guide, that would be the icing on the cake.
Tour was great! Full week into one day. Our guide at the Capitol Building was the best guide I and #39;ve ever had. I and #39;m not very into history, but she made it interesting. I could have listened to her all day. Our guide was great too. I only wish we could have shopped, but understand why we not.
We really enjoyed our trip Nick and Tony was great. We learned a lot about the city.
A trip worth taking
Very much interesting to see all the monuments And go inside the capital building was awesome
Appreciate the tour guide for all the information provided to all of us and help us understand how history meets itself
Nickolas McCall was the best tour guide ever . Very young but extremely knowledgeable. The 6 hrs tour was excellent we learnt a lot.
This is a full day of all the major monuments in Washington, D.C. Tour guide Christopher was very knowledgeable. As a life long resident of the city, he was able to add some personal facts along the way. He had us laughing at his anticdotes. Highly recommend this tour, especially for first time visitors.
Had a great time with our group. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area. I was under the impression that we were supposed to have lunch on the ferry however a little late but worth the wait. Lunch was given to us and it was filling and very delicious. We will definitely use Viator for our next tour booking.
This was a GREAT Tour. Our Tour Guide Chris and Driver were absolutely wonderful. Chris was extremely insightful, courteous, funny and professional. We will definitely use Viator, again!
Excellent. Wish it had included pick at Senate and House chambers but all n all great value. Our guide Nick was the best. It's great to see someone who so enjoys their work. Nich was extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. For the Capital tour we had Sophia who was also very good and I think she knew every person working in the Capital. Highly recommend this tour. Oh yeah our driver Tony was also great.
We took this tour on the first day of our 3 week holiday in the Washington region, and it was a great way to orientate ourselves with the city. Our driver Tony and guide Nick were really excellent. The tour was both informal and informative, which is exactly what we wanted. Nick had a great sense of humour too, and was great at answering questions. We were looked after well, particularly with water! This was very welcome, as the tour lasted the full day, and it was unseasonably hot for the time of year.
Thanks for a great day! It was very memorable! :-
My fit bit was counting away. We got our exercise in plus bus rides and boat ride. The Capitol was wonderful with very short line. We saw lots of monuments and I was happy to see FDR which I had never seen before. Nick was a wonderful guide as was the new bus driver. Nick kept us laughing.
A very good day out. Nick was the guide and was very courteous, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We started off at the Houses of Congress which includes a short tour. Security is tight and you should be pe prepared for airport standards. So do not take liquids, expensive perfumes and gels etc. you will have to bin them or not enter there is no exceptions. We did all the stops on the tour and Nick was knowledgeable with all the sights along with tit bits of gossip. The lunch was really good U.S. Brits are not used to such large portions. We had a massive sandwich freshly made in front of you a packet of crisps a drink and if we remember correctly a chocolate bar. We did most of the war memorials and famous statues learning along the way with Nick. We finished in the National Archive which was interesting. We did this tour after the night tour, you should do both as the monuments and memorials are different in the day light. Nick said he has been doing this for three years and is still learning. He spends a lot of his spare reading up and researching his tours. All in a a great day out and Nick was excellent.
Even though it rained 90 of our tour it was still an enjoyable experience. We had a great guide name Nick, he was professional, knowledgeable and very funny. The only portion of the tour that did not meet my expectation and was disappointing was the lunch boat ride down the Potomac River, but did get us off our feet for 45 min. If you book this tour try to sit facing the captain on the boat so when he points out topics of interest you won't be looking the wrong way.
Amazing trip, guide very informative and friendly.
Loved Washington and we learnt so much on the trip.
Busy and long day but well worth it.
Tour was well organized, stayed on schedule and covered more than we could have done on our own in 3 days. Our tour guide-Nick- was GREAT! He was very informative, entertaining and very professional. Our driver, Tony, was quiet but always where he was supposed to be.
Nick was an outstanding tour guide. Neal's first day of driving in crazy DC traffic was very impressive. Highly recommend this VIP tour to all visitors who want a comprehensive tour of DC.
